National Survey of Bicyclist and Pedestrian Behavior and Attitudes

The most recent survey of pedestrian and bicyclist attitudes and behavior was conducted in 2002. That survey provided program planners and community leaders with detailed information on walking and bicycling behavior, level of support for facilities assisting those activities, and awareness of safety issues. This survey will update that information. It will be administered to a randomly selected national sample of 9,000 people age 16 and older. The survey will collect trip information as well as information related to bicycle helmet use, injuries while bicycling or walking, practices to increase conspicuity at night, condition and use of sidewalks, knowledge of rules of the road, and attitudes toward bicycling and walking.
